Gandhi in Egypt
The turbulent post-revolution period was a time of enormous hope mixed with tremendous uncertainty. Rajmohan Gandhi, international peace advocate, historian, former parliamentarian, and grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, traveled to Egypt with a small delegation from the University of Illinois to lend solidarity to the Egyptian people and engage in dialogue with Nobel Peace Laureate Mohamed ElBaradei in a two-day encounter. The idea was for these two figures to reflect on the Arab uprisings, global justice and security, citizenship and education, the experience of Gandhi during India's independence movement, and pathways for democratic change.
